Grant: Do you listen to Pandora?
Me: Of course! Why?
Grant: Stop! We found something a million times better!!! It is called Grooveshark.com. It OWNS Pandora in every way possible! Literally!
Me: Most excellent. I shall try it out promptly. :-)
Grant: You can choose ANY song to listen to, you can make your own playlists (like on iTunes), you can play it Pandora style, you can slip forward and back, etc!!!
Me: That is most excellent! I wish we knew about it last night, Tom tried to put on some halloween music, but pandora was just not getting the right idea.
Grant: Type in "halloween music" to the search bar and press play all and you got it! We are listening to it right now. And there are no limits on how many you skip!
We promptly checked it out and I'm a huge fan! Tom spent like an hour on it that night listening to his favorite songs. I'm been listening to a little Michael Bublé right now.
If you like music, and have not yet checked this excellent website out, I urge you to do so now.
Why are you still here? GO!
I would not have you miss out on this comment from Grant:
I once again affirm my promotion and support of this FANTASTIC site!!!
Think of all of the things that you don't appreciate about Pandora (limited skipping forward, no skipping backward, no looking for specific songs and just hoping that Pandora would just happen to have that song in their random playlist so that your soul's need could be met, the new ads in the playlist, the 40 hour limit per month, etc).
Well, my friends, you can throw those concerns out the window with grooveshark.com. I am still fruitlessly looking for flaws in this very user-friendly interface. I have tested it's depths of resources and found the site to be amazingly comprehensive. And let's say that you find that it doesn't have something...throw your copy in there and upload it to the system so that others can enjoy it.
Some things that you will find that grooveshark.com provides, that inferior competitors do not: You can create your own playlists (much like iTunes), you can skip to the middle of a song, you have your own library, etc.
If your heart yearns to not have to create it's own playlist, then just plug in a favorite song of yours and press the "Radio" button and you have the same service that Pandora provides, without the annoying ads, restricted mobility, etc.
I can't stress enough how much stress relief this site will provide you and your friends and your family AND for the strangers on the street that you share this information with in your newly found enthusiasm for your new favorite music listening resource, grooveshark.com. So join in the celebration and enjoy life to a greater degree!
